As Temperatures Warm, Lake Superior Has Yet To Melt

May 29, 2014

It was a warm Memorial Day weekend on the shores of Lake Superior, but no one would have guessed it based on views of the water Saturday.

Author Ellen Airgood lives in Grand Marais. Her books include South of Superior, and Prairie Evers.

“The first day I could wear shorts and a t-shirt, and then the ice had all blown back into shore,” says Ellen Airgood. The author of South of Superior runs a diner in Grand Marais with her husband.

Airgood says anglers aren’t thrilled, but a lot of tourists have been “tickled” by the sight. Some have even been testing out the waters. She shared some photos from a road trip she took along the shore Wednesday evening.
